There are many ways to give:
Gifts of cash are the most popular type of charitable gift and may be made outright or through a pledge. Gifts of cash may be made by check and credit card, and are deductible in the calendar year in which given.
Gifts of Stock
Gifts of stock, in particular appreciated securities that have been owned for more than one year and have increased in value and are an excellent way to make a gift and gain substantial tax benefits. Donating appreciated securities provides a charitable tax deduction for the full value of the securities on the date gifted. In addition, if appreciated securities are used to make a bequest or to fund a charitable trust or other planned giving arrangement, a donor may realize substantial estate and gift tax benefits.
